I am currently signed off with stress. Spoken to my Union about the reasons and they have almost immediately pushed for an agreed settlement. I cannot survive without my salary. How long does this kind of settlement take on average? Feeling very concerned about my future and my ability to even apply for another teaching position, never mind acing an interview. Any info you might be able to share with me would be gratefully received. I know I'm not being descriptive but my colleagues use the forums.
